My husband’s best friend is expecting a baby boy and I know he and his wife are planning to circumcise. His wife has 3 other boys who are circumcised, but this is my husband’s friend’s first child. Any idea about who would be most likely to be open to info about circumcision?


I’m leaning toward mentioning it to my husband’s friend vs his wife. I am less worried about offending the wife since she and I aren’t much other than fb friends and do not want to mess with DH’s friendship by talking to his friend, but I also have a feeling the friend is more likely to listen and since he’s the one with the penis, he’d likely have sway with his wife. Thoughts?

Show the husband this:

You could buy him the book, What your doctor may not tell you about circumcision. Here is a link to the book http://www.amazon.com/What-Your-Doctor-About-Circumcision/dp/0446678805.

And here is a link to some of the books content, if your curious before you buy it. http://mensightmagazine.com/Articles/Fleiss,%20M.%20Paul/tellaboutcirc.htm

I would give him the book and tell him you were quite shocked when you first learnt about it and that you wanted to share what you had learnt with him. He can read the book and share it with his wife.
